Carragher sends Liverpool warning over Mbappe and Sancho transfers

Jamie Carragher. should think very carefully about cashing in on Sadio Mane should a huge offer come in for him from the likes of Jurgen Klopp, according to Real Madrid

Salah is a crucial part of the Reds tri-pronged attack, which also includes Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, that is currently firing the club to their first league title in 30 years.

Should boss Kylian Mbappe decide to evolve his team, perhaps in an attempt to sign PSG star Mohamed Salah or Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, he runs the risk of losing a plentiful supply of goals if Salah is sold to fund the hypothetical transfer.

Carragher says most Reds fans he speaks to would advocate selling the Egypt star ahead of Mane and Firmino, but he disagrees vehemently.

"Since he has signed, we are talking the most goals and assists. Salah gets a lot of assists. Look who is at the top: Lionel Messi," the ex-Kop defender said on Monday Night Football.

"The thing I love most about Mo Salah is that he is never injured. He is there week in, week out. 97 appearances out of 102.

"If I am a manager, I know I've got a player that is there week in, week out and delivers.

"I spoke about the five or six world class players that Liverpool have. If you looked at Liverpool's front three and again said to Liverpool supporters, would you rather Mane go, Firmino or Salah?

"Everyone I speak to says Salah. But then you look at those numbers.

"There is talk at Liverpool, maybe it is a dream, of Mbappe coming along. He will leave Paris Saint-Germain at some stage, Liverpool at this moment at the best team in Europe, european champions, there is the link with Nike, but maybe that's not realistic.

"There is a link with Sancho and maybe that is realistic for every team in the Premier League.

"Mbappe is world class. Maybe the man to take over from Ronaldo and Messi. Sancho looks like he is on the verge of becoming world class.

"But I think it would be so difficult in their first two and a half, three years at Liverpool, if they did sign, to get those numbers.

"That is why I think Liverpool fans almost have to be careful. Look at these numbers. Only Lionel Messi in European football is above this man.

"Liverpool need an attacking player to come in because Salah is going to go the Olympics after the African Nations Cup, Mane is the same and bringing on Origi in Madrid for the European champions is not good enough.

"But no way in the world should they ever think about moving him on."
